Fire station plays an important role in ensuring the safety of people, property and environment. In order to improve the emergency rescue capability of the fire station, its influence factors are distinguished and a capability evaluation system is established in the present paper. The system is composed of goal layer, criteria layer and sub-criteria layer. The goal layer is the evaluation objective, namely, the emergency rescue capability of urban fire station. The criteria layer and sub-criteria layer contain five indexes and 25 indexes, respectively. Within the established evaluation system, the fuzzy comprehensive evaluation (FCE) method is chosen to analyze the decision problem. The weight of each index included in the system is determined based on the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) method. Thus, the level of the emergency rescue capability of the fire station can be evaluated quantitatively. At last, a fire station in Zhengzhou city is taken as an example to verify the effectiveness of the established system. The results reveal that the emergency rescue capability of the fire station is in general level. Accordingly, the measures to strengthen the rescue capacity of the referred fire station are put forward.
